Raiders vs. Chiefs: Denarius Moore has 4 receptions, 90 yards and 1 touchdown

Peter Aiken

In a game without a lot of offense, Denarius Moore is playing well.

In a game that has been devoid of a lot of offense, it's Oakland's Denarius Moore who has separated himself from the rest of the game's receivers against the Kansas City Chiefs. He leads all players with four receptions, for 90 yards and a touchdown.

Moore has become Carson Palmer's favorite target this season, and the only receiver to catch more than one touchdown on the season. Entering Sunday's game, he had 323 yards, and three touchdowns. Now he stands alone as the Raiders' only 400-yard receiver on the season.

It was a 58-yard reception that has been the difference on Sunday, and a large reason why Moore is having a successful day. His touchdown came on a nine-yard reception in which he caught a slant over the middle, where he got behind the linebackers and safeties, hauling in a high throw from Carson Palmer.

At times, Palmer's accuracy has been shaky today, as he has completed just 50 percent of his passes. If he can settle down and get into more of a rhythm in the second half, Moore could be the benefactor.
